In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.
Changes to Terms or Services
We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or through other communications.

You may use the Services only if you are 13 years or older and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.
Registration and Your Information
If you want to use certain features, including the sharing features, of the Services you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). You can do this via the App by providing your phone number or email address and also your name if you choose. In order to create the Account you may also need to confirm your phone number or email address by entering a code sent to your phone number or email address, depending on which you entered. You agree to receive emails, text messages and phone calls (from us or our third-party providers) with codes to register for our Services. We may also allow you to create an Account through your account with certain third-party social networking services such as Facebook (each, an “SNS Account”). If you choose the SNS Account option we’ll create your Account by extracting from your SNS Account certain personal information such as your name, email address and phone number and other personal information that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to access.
You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
We welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”). You can submit Feedback by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You grant to us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise exploit the Feedback for any purpose.
Content and Content Rights
For purposes of these Terms: (i) “Content” means text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, works of authorship of any kind, and information or other materials that are posted, generated, provided or otherwise made available through the Services; (ii) “User Content” means any Content that Account holders (including you) provide to be made available through the Services; (iii) “Device Content” means the content on your device that you grant the Services access to, for example, your address book or your Media; (iv) “Media” means photos, images, videos and other audio-visual content; and (v) “Derived Media Data” means the information and data contained in and related to, your Device Content, including, without limitation, the data and information your device stores about and with your Device Content and data the Services may derive based on analysis of your Device Content. Content includes, without limitation, User Content. Device Content includes, without limitation, Derived Media Data.
Sharing User Content
The Services allow you to share User Content with other users. You are able to select Media, for example photos, from your Device Content to share via the Services. The Services also contain an automatic sharing feature that will automatically select Media from your Device Content to share via the Services. Once the Services select Media to share, by default, you will have 3 hours to decide whether to allow the Services to share the selected Media, after which the automatically selected Media will be shared via the Services. You can adjust the relevant time period in the App to be between 0 (such that the sharing of the automatically selected Device Content happens upon selection) and 24 hours. Any Device Content shared via the Services, whether selected by you or the Services, is User Content. By using the Services you agree to allow the Services share automatically selected Device Content in accordance with these Terms. You can also limit the users with which you share User Content to specific Account holders.
Get Attached may remove User Content from the Services periodically and without warning. You should not expect to, and should not, use the Services as a repository for your User Content.
When the Services select Media from your Device Content to share via the Services, the Services will attempt not to share, any Media containing nudity, documents, credit cards, blurry photos along with other categories we may determine later that are not suitable for automatic sharing. However, Get Attached cannot, and does not, guarantee that Media containing such categories will not be selected for sharing or ultimately shared via the Services. You may also choose to pre-select that certain Media in your Device Content not be shared via the Services by choosing to “hide” it in the App. If you or the Services determine that certain Media in your Device Content is not suitable for sharing, then that Media, except for the Derived Media Data, will not be sent to Get Attached and will not be shared via the Services, unless you choose to manually share such Media.
Furthermore, if you do not wish to use the automatic sharing feature of the Services, you can turn off this feature in the App by choosing the “manual” or “private” mode. In the “manual” mode you can still share User Content via the Services and Derived Media Data will still be sent to Get Attached. In the “private” mode you will not be able to share User Content via the Services and Derived Media Data will not be sent to Get Attached.
Except as provided in the following sentence and not withstanding any other provision in these Terms, Get Attached shall not be liable in any manner to you for any User Content that is shared by your Account via the Services, regardless of whether such sharing was initiated by you or by the Services. In the event that User Content selected by the Services is shared via your account that you did not want to be shared, within the App you can chose to stop sharing and delete such User Content, and Get Attached will user commercially reasonable efforts to remove such User Content from the Services.
Content Ownership, Responsibility and Removal

These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Subject to the “Dispute Resolution” provisions below, any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in state or federal courts located in the Southern District of New York and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Get Attached agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide Get Attached with written notice of your desire to do so by email or regular mail at 1 Little West 12th Street, New York, NY 10014 within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide Get Attached with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if you timely provide Get Attached with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be the state and federal courts located in the Southern District of New York and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless you timely provide Get Attached with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you and Get Attached are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Get Attached otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section, will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration and a separate Demand for Arbitration for California residents.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless you and Get Attached otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Get Attached submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Get Attached will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Get Attached will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Get Attached changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to email@example.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Get Attached’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Get Attached in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Get Attached and you regarding the Services, Content and Device Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Get Attached and you regarding the Services Content and Device Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the terms of the “Arbitration” section above or by court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you timely opt out of arbitration by sending us an Arbitration Opt-out Notice in accordance with the terms set forth above), that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Get Attached’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Get Attached may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Get Attached under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Get Attached’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Get Attached. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
If you have any questions about these Terms or the Services, please contact Get Attached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
